In 1914, famed conservationist Aldo Leopold founded the Albuquerque Wildlife Federation (AWF), to protect and perpetuate wildlife and natural resources.
In honor of the organization’s centennial anniversary, AWF Vice President Kristina Fisher and Projects Committee member Phil Carter will visit the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) to present a fun and informative walk down memory lane.
The program is 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 5. It is free to attend and no advance registration is required.
The pair will talk about the group’s history, including showing exclusive photos and documents. They also will share with the group information about current activities in ecological restoration across the state, including vital work being done in Valles Caldera National Preserve.
The Albuquerque Wildlife Federation is an all-volunteer non-profit organization focused on New Mexico’s wildlife and habitat resources. Among AWF’s dedicated and able volunteers are wildlife experts, public land stewards, sportsmen and hunters, and most especially, ordinary citizens committed to conservation of nature’s wealth for personal satisfaction and for future generations.
